Dynamics and Physics

Overview People and Interests Research Topics Related Projects

The Dynamics and Physics Theme involves research aimed at improving our understanding of tropical cyclones through the application of fundamental physical principles of air motion, moist thermodynamics, and radiation. Researchers use a combination of theory, aircraft observations, analysis, and numerical modeling to better understand how phenomena from the microscale to the environmental scale contribute to motion, structure and intensity changes. Researchers work closely with scientists in the other themes to improve the tools available and to apply new understanding in a way that benefits prediction.
